Discover the Inspiring Tale of My Scarf in a Box Founders
It would seem easy to make a scarf but in reality, it is the result of a long research, of the best materials, starting from the structure of the fabric and how this, once dyed, absorbs the dye. Like all the great discoveries, it all happened a little by chance, in the laboratory of Liberty Chemicals, where his father, the owner of the company, went periodically to take refuge to find refreshment from the countless phone calls of customers and suppliers. Corrado’s father Alberto is the protagonist of this story: born in 1955, someone who was a visionary, wore his worn-out lab coat, dotted with infinite spots of different colors that between one experiment and the other had ended up on him. He began to select some color powder, take large glass containers and once filled with water he melted the colors gradually heating the temperature. That time the magic happened: when the piece of fabric emerged from the dye and was dried, it immediately noticed its peculiarity.
To enhance the blending effect and the chromatic dynamism of the scarf, they have chosen as a feature the "double faces" using a special technique of stitching. The scarves are sewn one by one in an Italian Tailoring Shop in the nearby of Como. The stitching process of the two different faces is very delicate and requires over an hour of time to create a single scarf.
In each of the collections, they try to establish an emotional bond between the colors and shades of the scarves and tell a story about the beautiful things of Italy and reminds us of a good memory, a scent, a place. MY SCARF IN A BOX created a product with a strong personality, associating each scarf a different theme, on a journey to Italy through the play of light and colors, landscapes and picturesque places such as in a Grand tour of the past. From Sanremo to Siena, passing through the blue sea of Portofino to the colors of the flowers of Capri, a trip on Lake Como, to then leave cradled by a gondola in Venice Lagoon.
I have to add that the shades of colors of these scarves are unbelievably beautiful and elegant. You will enjoy owning at least one of these scarves, if you can stop yourself from buying more.
